Roof and Gutter Ice Dam Prevention Specialists
Ice dams are caused by snowmelt refreezing at the eaves or gutter edge. Causes range from heat loss from the conditioned living space to temperatures fluctuating above and below freezing to the sun warming the roof surface and melting snow. As this melt water reaches the cold gutter or roof edge it refreezes and forms a ‘dam’ or build up that traps water behind. This trapped water then finds its way in through weaknesses in the roof structure causing property damage including rot and mold. The build up on the exterior leads to large, dangerous icicle formation and treacherous, slippery spots on walks and drives below. Both are a physical health risk. We specialize in minimizing Ice Dam Formation using safe, efficient radiant roof panels and heated gutter protection.
How the Roof and Gutter Ice Dam Prevention Systems Work
We only use UL listed self regulating heat cables in our systems. We are the Wisconsin source for Bylin Roof Ice Melt Systems and heated gutter guards from VersaScreen Gutter Protection – the IceBlaster. All of our systems maximize efficiency and lower operating costs by combining self regulating heat cables with the thermally efficient properties of aluminum. We allow the roof and gutter heat cables to warm the aluminum panels which increases the area they warm by well established principles of thermal dynamics. More is accomplished with less. Less heat cable = less operating costs. There is no longer the need for inefficient, unsightly and unsafe zig zag heat cables on your roof. Our radiant roof panels are attractive and efficient!
